Please check one of the boxes below to tell us what you would like us to do with the information you are providing on this
questionnaire. If you would like to file a charge of job discrimination, you must do so either within 180 days from the day you
knew about the discrimination, or within 300 days from the day you knew about the discrimination if the employer is located in
a place where a state or local government agency enforces laws similar to the EEOC’s laws. If you do not file a charge of
discrimination within the time limits, you will lose your rights. If you would like more information before filing a charge
or you have concerns about EEOC’s notifying the employer, union, or employment agency about your charge, you may
wish to check Box 1. If you want to file a charge, you should check Box 2.
